case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c

and everybody, the president, the secretary, everybody agrees that would be very devastating for u.s. national security and they want to avoid at all costs. >> thank you. that is helpful. rich, governor romney has said many, many times that he would not like to cut the defense budget, but at to the same time be inconsistent with lower taxes. within the framework of the problems that the country has to date with respect to the national deficit, et cetera, i don't know anybody who says you can't raise defense spending, cut taxes and accomplish anything with respect to the national debt. so how do you do that, sir? >> i should introduce you to more people. >> look, i heard the same thing in 1979 and in 1980. on the economy was crippled with double-digit inflation. >> you think is the same as in today? >> no, it's worse, but it can be done with the government's been clear about if he thinks we have to rebuild our navy. and he thinks obviously with the philosophical difference with president obama and governor reagan on the economy -- governor romney and president obama on the economy, it is one th
and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their

that chris christie will not be the running mate? >> the first thing it tells us is that chris christie isn't going to be the running mate. look, i think what it tells us is they understand that chris christie is a powerful force within this party. he is someone who kind of has the charisma, the zeal that mitt romney to be frank lacks. i think they want to elevate chris christie. one other thing about chris christie i think gets lost in this, he is the speak truth to power guy, the i'm going to tell it how it is. he is also a governor elected in 2009 in a blue state. let's not lose sight of that, either, the messaging it sends that republicans can and do win in states that tend to go to democrats on the presidential level. assuming that jamie's reporting is right, i have no reason to believe it isn't -- >> jamie's reporting is always dead on. take it from me. >> i believe that christie is an intriguing and probably a great pick. i think he's going to draw a huge amount of attention and he will use this, christie will use this i think to launch himself even higher in kind of the national str

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] from government was there in the wee hours of the morning when we were doing our regular jobs at the same time working to start our business. small businesses operate in a world of bottom lines washington knows very little about. unlike washington, they don't have the luxury to deficit spend, print more money or profess as, quote, spending cuts, lower than anticipated growth. when the president claimed the american system allowed the askess to thrive, he made a dangerous -- allowed the success to thrive, he made a dangerous error. it does not permit them to drive. that language suggests government is a benefactor possessing the authority to give or take the blessings of open commerce as it sees fit. no, government does not allow you to thrive. government, when it operates in its constitutional capacity, does not object -- obstruct your thriving. ask

own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston headquarters to keep hammering a comment made by the president last friday. >> if you got a busines
on the attack against the president using really his own words instead of having to come up with a hurried vice presidential announcement. and, wolf, there are some tea leaves to read here. kelly aot said to be high on mitt romney's vice presidential search list, she is going to be appearing with mitt romney up in new hampshire tomorrow. the romney campaign announced that yesterday. wolf, i think it stands to reason that the campaign would not have announced this event, would not have said slooes going to be at this event up in new hampshire if they were going to somehow come out tomorrow and announce she's the vice presidential running mate. so i think that's an indication that perhaps this window before he goes to the olympics is closing and that the vice presidential announcement will come off the olympics are over, wolf. >> they haven't released his exact schedule yet. when he's going to be in london, israel, when he's heading back to the united states. he's going to poland as well. do we know any details about that? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that, yes, all three of those
kidnapped in that area this year. elise labott has been following the developments for us from jordan. she joins us by phone. elise, what is different would you say about this kidnapping compared to the others that we've reported on before? >> reporter: well, randi, in the past a lot of these kidnappings were about money. a lot of them were trying to make a little extra money. what they would do is kidnap americans or other westerners for ransom. and a short period of time they were released. this time they have some very specific demands. they have some relatives detained recently in alexandra on drug charges and they want them released in exchange for releasing these americans. >> so will the state department, will anybody in the u.s. government negotiate with them? >> reporter: well, that's not really u.s. policy, randi, to negotiate with kidnappers or terrorists. and also this is about egyptian law. the egyptian authorities are working on this issue with trying to negotiate the release, not really clear whether they would let these relatives go. but the u.s. is really leaving it in the
, and humility who have called it justice by its name. for every one of us, a particular person comes to mind. someone who set a standard of conduct and made us better by their example. for me, that man is my father, george romney. it wasn't just that my dad helped right the civil rights provision for the massachusetts, he helped create michigan's first civil rights commission or that as governor he marched for civil rights on the streets of detroit, though he did those things, too. more than these acts, he was the kind of man he was and the way he dealt with every person, black or white. he was a man of the fairest instincts and a man of faith who knew that every person was a child of god. [ applause ] i'm grateful to him for so many things and, above all, for the knowledge of god whose ways are not always our ways but whose justice is certain and whose mercy endures forever. every good cause on this earth relies in the end on a plan bigger than ours without dependence on god, dr. king said, our efforts turn to ashes and our sun rises in the darkest night. we find only what called cures that
that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an
not keeping the burden on either one of you. for a lot of us, we're trying to figure out how can we be accountable. we do not want to blame somebody else. that doesn't cut it to our employers. >> we have to stop pointing fingers. these false debates do not move anything for. i met in the state, i will not name it, with a number of superintendents. i asked the employers, how many of the high-school graduates are ready to come and your place of work? they said, less than 50%. and the room got quiet. they had never -- these were all good hearted people in the same community. they had never talked. somehow, whenever you can do, whenever we can do to facilitate both skidding past educators running business, they do not get it. so much mutual self-interest, but they had never had a conversation. that is what we have to figure out. >> we're in the middle of doing that, region by region. bringing the largest employers with their educators. we are guilty of this as governors, but you talk about having -- we want to be as tight as we can on the standards and as loose on how we get there. i kn
